Custom 450 is considered as one of the high-performance alloys that can be easily fabricated and hardened. This type of nickel alloy grade possesses yield strength properties similar to martensitic stainless steel. This alloy can extremely stand heat-treated conditions and is suitable to be machined into very close tolerance prior to aging.
Custom 450 is a higher form of age-hardenable stainless steel that displays excellent resistance to corrosion and moderation in strength. This kind of alloy has a yield strength that is much stronger compared to that of 100 ksi in an annealed condition but it can easily be forged through a fabrication process. During the heat-treated condition, the ductility and toughness are developed at a much higher level.
Custom 450 is employed in certain applications if other steels like martensitic and austenitic stainless steels fail in corrosive environments requiring great strength and corrosion resistance. This alloy can be suited to undergo various machining conditions like welding and shielded fusion methods.
O’Hare Precision Metals also includes Custom 450 upon its vast inventory of products for customer high demands and ranging requests.
